Learn (virtually) alongside peers in Netanya, Israel, as Dr. Gary P. Zola presents "Pesach and Parody: An Experience with American Hebrew"
Most people find it hard to believe there were actually Hebrew writers in the U.S., even before the Yishuv! Join Israelis participating from Cincinnati's partner city, Netanya, for an introduction to this kind of writing. Dr. Zola will focus on the works of Gerson Rosenzweig, an American Jew who, more than a hundred years ago, specialized in writing Hebrew satire on life in America, including poking fun at the U.S. through Pesach (Passover).
Sunday, March 17, 12 p.m.
The Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives, on the campus of HUC-JIR (3101 Clifton Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45220)
